Snap cure polyurethane resin system from Huntsman

© Huntsman.© Huntsman.

Automotive experts from Huntsman have developed a new two-component, snap cure, polyurethane resin system, which can help optimize the production of complex, three-dimensional, composite parts with tight dimensional tolerances. VITROX RTM 00410 resin will be officially launched at JEC World 2020 in early March.

Designed to meet the short cycle times required in the automotive industry, VITROX RTM 00410 resin combines a flexible, low-viscosity, injection window with a fast cure at moderate tooling temperatures. Featuring Huntsman’s patented, snap cure technology, the injection window of VITROX RTM 00410 resin can be carefully controlled by manufacturers and adjusted to suit the geometry of the parts being produced.

Compatible with high-pressure resin transfer moulding (HP-RTM), dynamic fluid compression moulding (DFCM) and wet compression moulding techniques, VITROX RTM 00410 resin delivers excellent fibre wet out and limited press build-up upon injection. This enables part manufacturers to use low-density core materials. The result is lighter sandwich parts, made with less resin, with no compromise on rigidity, strength and durability. Parts made from VITROX RTM 00410 can also be demoulded quickly - helping manufacturers maximize line productivity and cut back on tool cleaning costs.

Irina Bolshakova, Senior Market Manager for Transportation at Huntsman, comments: “Working closely with our customers, we have a track record for creating chemistries, materials and solutions that can help solve complex design and production issues in a rapidly evolving, fast-paced industry. At JEC World 2020 we will demonstrate a leaf spring made using VITROX RTM polyurethane resin system. We will also be showcasing our latest developments for automotive interior components - RIMLINE HC+ resin, a two-part polyurethane system that can be spray-applied to fiberglass-reinforced honeycomb panels; and RIMLINE FC rigid foam technology for composite cores.”
